Becky Hubsch of Summit was recently honored by Associated School Boards of South Dakota with the ASBSD Community Service Award for her commitment to enhancing the Summit School District.

The Community Service Award is presented to individuals or groups serving their local school district in exemplary fashion.

Hubsch has blazed a trail in Summit by leading the charge in securing grant funding for multiple programs that have benefitted the school district and community, spearheading a community effort to fund building projects and filling many different roles in the school.

She acquired grant funding to combat childhood hunger through the CHAMP (Children’s Health Always Matters Partnership) project and for the 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool and summertime program. In addition, Hubsch organized community funding efforts for the school and community’s wellness center and gym floor.

“The time and effort Becky put forth to enhance the Summit School District through so many different programs is very admirable,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said.

“Her deep-rooted dedication to the district is on full display and we’re proud to have the opportunity to honor her for it.”
